The Mackie MR524 is a near field studio monitor re-designed from the ground up to deliver the very best audio experience for your recordings and tracks. With an all-new design, the MR524 monitors utilize proven technology and acoustic tuning to deliver incredible accuracy and clarity. The logarithmic waveguide provides an ultra-wide listening sweet spot and enhanced stereo imaging while the Acoustic Space Control allows you to adjust the frequency response of the monitor to match your studio. Whether it’s dialogue, hip-hop, rock, and beyond, you can listen with confidence knowing your mix will sound great anywhere.
Built for superior mix translation
It’s clear that Mackie designed the MR524 with a serious eye on accuracy. This studio monitor’s logarithmic waveguide system minimizes the diffraction and reflections that can color your sound, ensuring enhanced stereo imaging and a generous sweet spot. Experience balanced sound across the entire frequency spectrum, thanks to the MR524’s precise acoustic alignment. Acoustic absorption has been incorporated into the MR524 to tighten its sound, while internal bracing adds stiffness to reduce distortion and enhance low-frequency response.
Perfectly matched drivers and amplifiers
Packing 50 watts of Class AB amplification that is ideally matched to the 5″ polypropylene woofer and 1″ silk-dome tweeter, the MR524 delivers extreme clarity with plenty of output and responsive, dynamic lows. It’s also optimized for transient response, so it reproduces snare drums and other quick-transient sources with complete fidelity. And if you need more low-end extension, the companion MRS10 subwoofer is also available.
Customizable frequency control
The MR524 provides you with an adjustable acoustic space control, plus a boost/cut filter for your highs. These controls allow you to fine-tune your frequency response to your room and speaker placement — handy to have, considering very few of us work in acoustically perfect rooms. And speaking of useful features, you also get flexible input connectivity with balanced XLR and TRS connectors, plus an RCA — letting you integrate your monitors into a variety of studio setups.
